For a trail that is relatively flat, this one presents more than its fair share of technical difficulties. Rock Slabs, short technical punchy climbs and man made features keep you on your toes.

Access Info

Start from either the Dead Man's flats overpass, or from Heart Creek trailhead

       Rode it from East to West.... probably better to ride it from west to east though(dead mans flats to heart creek). Some super fun parts but definitely a hiking trail before a biking trail. The most beautiful part of the trail has steep staircases and nearly impossible ledges that is not conducive to bike riding. I'm sure danny macaskill could do it but not exactly my idea of an enjoyable bike ride - something to keep in mind. I would say about 4km of the trail is good. rest is so-so at best.
